I'm afraid you need a special permit as the decibles these suckers put out have a tendency to disrupt the magnetic field surrounding the planet. Apparently, some folks think that is a bad thing. Oh, that and an amp powerful enough to drive these montsters would draw enough power to black out Los Angeles.

i'm one of those rare folks that can tell a difference,for now.the whole mp3 thing is fine,it's the trading of mp3 that pollutes the gene pool so to speak.when you make a copy of a copied mp3 it's like a copy of a tape,the quality drops.remember when you got a hold of a low generation tape.similar to that.for now lossless for my young 36 year old ears but in time my ears will crap out.mp3 is just fine just don't trade them.who knows what the future holds and it's best to trade shn/flac to keep it as close to the original quality as possible.enjoy the music.

I'm confused:

If I convert to or download in MP3 format, won't all digital copies of what I downloaded be the same? Or is it that if I turn the MP3 to Wav and then turn the Wav file back to MP3, that process dilutes the quality?

But yes, one should not introduce MP3 into the general stream against the wishes of those who work on and uploaded the files in lossless. For you own purposes, etc. However, I don't have a moral problem with sharing an MP3 copy as long as it is clear that it is MP3.

Renee Zellweger? would have to be an old pic, when she was 13 or 14

Okay, so it DOES look like her.

I don't know when the picture was taken, but if it was at an '89 show, that would have made her 20 years old.

Why do you think I seek these weapons of mass destruction?
